“Modern and Clean”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

About three blocks off the train and bus route the Greulich is fairly convenient. Very clean rooms and a very friendly staff. If you want privacy while going to bathroom, this might not be the hotel for you. But, if you're cool with the frosted glass bathroom walls the rooms are very comfortable.

We didn't inquire, but it also appeared they had bicycles you could use during your stay.

I recently went to Zurich on business and came across this well located and easily overlooked gem of a hotel.

The service, quality, professionalism and friendliness of staff along with the fantastic food and incredibly well appointed rooms have added this to my list of firm favourites.

I will certainly aim to go back when I am in Zurich next

Rooms are almost sterile :) Designed as a very modern place (sometimes solutions are not well thought through ie. in one room water from the shower suddenly started entering the room :D

But in general it is a very nice place and every time we've been there, we had a great time!

Great hotel in Zurich! We always stay at the Greulich when we stay in Zurich. They have very good weekend packages and staff is nice. The rooms (superior) are big and airy and I really like the bathroom design. Last time we went, breakfast was a bit disapointing but otherwise the experience is always very pleasant.

It is central, it is in a lively neighborhood and it is gorgeous. The rooms are soothing and uncluttered and the backyard "forrest" is calm and beautiful. I simply enjoy everything about this hotel! A real treat for urbanites.

The Greulich, with its singular-bleu, modern-style geometric façade and large, rectangular windows ("Nighthawks") is truly inviting. First, there's the terrace, the bar, ... opening up ... to the restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. The staff is more then welcoming and helpful. The architectural quality and the relaxed, failry intimate atmosphere make the place stand out. There are the wood-paneled reception and dining area, the great inner court (beautiful during the day and lit at night) with the birch tress leading up to the contemporary, half-indoor/outdoor lane with the newly- built rooms with very large glkass walls, shades ... in which you feel at rest and at peace. Also, the location is very fine - on a main city axis leading you straight into the heart of the city, ("Volkshaus restaurant" just nearby). A minus ... Breakfast was not included and fairly pricy given that the place wants to bring quality to your stay and a nice breakfast is part of that. However, on the bright side: the very best thing about my stay at the Greulich was the beautiful, bright-red hotel bike which I used, free of charge, all the time and on which I covered the whole city, ... from the Friday Tower to the new Löwenbrau, from the Kunsthalle to the Grand Dolder, from the pools on the Limat to the Utoquai.

Room Tip: Opt for a room in the new wing

Reviewed 18 June 2013

We stayed for three nights in a standard room in the courtyard area. The design was clean, contemporary with muted colours and simple lines, and while not large, the room was given a feeling of more space by the high ceiling. The bed was very comfortable with beautiful linen. The bathroom is partitioned with a glass panel, so privacy is limited, which might not suit all guests.

Breakfast was not included in the room rate, but was quite a generous buffet with very high quality breads, yoghurts, ham, cheese, etc. The bar has a good range of drinks but is quite small and it would have been nice to have a larger lounge area. In nice weather there are lots of tables outside, but it rained/snowed solidly during our visit.

The location is a little outside the city centre in the residential Kreis 4 neighbourhood with plenty of cafes / restaurant / bars in easy walking distance. It is just a few stops by tram into the city centre or an interesting walk.

The staff were friendly and recognised us after the first day. Overall the ambience was relaxed and not over-designed, and it was a very pleasant place to stay. Plus it is the only hotel I've ever stayed in which provides yoga mats for guests to use!

Room Tip: Standard rooms are not large but still fine for two people.
